I switched back to regular 91 RON petrol.

Even the owner's manual does not ask for 95 RON petrol.

PS: Put the car into Sport mode, even in city traffic, it masks the turbo lag well.
Very different experience from mine, it took two tanks of xp95 but for me the difference with and without it for turbo lag seemed obvious. With the first fI’ll, I couldn’t notice a difference, but the second time around, the turbo lag seems noticeably slower. Switching back to 91 Ron and I could feel that delay when accelerating, this can be remedied, as you said, by switching to sports mode, but I think that drank more fuel..

maybe it’s all placebo and in my head, but I definitely a difference, will try again next month with 91 Ron and see the difference then

Re: Hyundai i20 N Line Review

I test drove a certified used N8 DCT yesterday. I'm posting here to get a clarity on a low speed mild but constant jerk in vehicle at 1kmph till 3 kmph. It vanished beyond that speed. Worried a bit before signing the cheque. If it is minor wheel alignment, i'm fine. If it is a DCT issue, please share your experience. Is that anything to be worried?

There is a jerk in the DCT from D1 to D2, but no jerks within gears. I've never felt jerks in the speed range mentioned.

The i20N6 Journey

It was in late 2021 that we realized that we needed a small car/mini SUV. We have built a small cottage in the Uttarakhand region and our other relatively largish cars could not navigate the last stretch and reach the doorstep. Even if we managed to negotiate the one sharp turn, it was impossible to turn it around in the narrow strip available to negotiate around the cottage. We were seriously considering the Venue and even went to check it out and take a test drive. I really liked the driving dynamics of the 1.0 Turbo petrol but we were put off by things like the pretentious plastic clad steel wheels. I thought it was a joke in a very bad taste—if Hyundai wanted to give steel wheels then they should’ve let them look like so. I happened to then lay my eyes on the N6 with essentially the same engine. It seemed a much better package and I could see that with its low profile and suspension setup it would offer better driving characteristics, especially for our requirements.

I have a special respect for proper low-slung sedans and hatchbacks that perform much better especially on the winding hill roads—the low GC evokes more confidence and less throwing around feeling around sharp turns. I also feel that a hatchback car is more closer to the original front-wheel drive design that revolutionized the auto industry.
One of our central requirements was good highway performance with decent safety rating, which the N6 seemed to have on offered. I felt that the N6 with its stiff suspension, all round discs and low road-hugging profile was a better package in this regard, since it also offered slightly better sitting position for long distance comfort and even had a few more extra litres of boot space, which was a critical difference for our needs. So, we went ahead and booked it in November 2021.

The car was delivered within a week and it has remained my primary mode of transport since. The car was bought without finance or fanfare and I detest the idea of having frills or ribbons on my cars so the delivery process was rather sedate and solemn and it appeared that the delivery agents were more excited and enthusiastic than we were. This is at least our 15th or 16th car, and that too one of the smallest we have owned yet (apart from the original Japanese made Maruti 800 of the 1984 lot) so there wasn’t much to be excited about. But, I was still touched by the genuine warmth and feeling by the staff at Nimbus Hyundai here at Noida/NCR.

Features

Apart from regular stuff like a decently sized touch screen entertainment system (which I feel is more a distraction than of being much practical utility), the N6 came with some very sensible features that have proven themselves valuable over the last 15 months of ownership. This includes: (a) the absolutely top-quality audio quality from the standard speaker set, (b) an excellent suspension setup, (c) the well setup all round discs with ABS and EBD, (d) the fine electric steering (which surpassed my expectation), and (e) the fine-tuned engine with its throaty exhaust setup.

I was also inclined towards the N6 because it offers one core feature—a steering lock combination start switch. I detest the start-stop button, which is a glaring and ugly example of the present trend of ‘over-featurization’. I like the steering key system because despite so many cars and a long driving history I have yet to face a keylock failure while I am aware of instances amongst my own friends who were rendered immobile with their relatively new and sophisticated cars because of the failure of the push button system. It is my philosophy that critical systems should be as robust as possible in any machine. I personally have no respect for the push button start-stop systems simply because rather than adding much value these system simply introduce more redundant automation that is prone to failure and thus reduce the robustness of the system. The start-stop switch is reminiscent of the system that TATA trucks have had since the beginning and compared to them the steering combination lock system with an electronic key identification is definitely an epitome of good engineering design.

Initially I wasn’t very thrilled with the clutchless iMT but over the period I have grown used to it and even like it especially in the city driving where crawling conditions and frequent. I am big advocate of practical features and don’t like pointless and gimmicky stuff. Had I the option, I would have preferred the version without an iMT but unfortunately the N6 only came with this. I am also not too fond of the all-digital speedo on this car but it does have a utility for 53 years old eyes of mine—it displays the speed and RPM very boldly such that I can clearly read the odo without my glasses.

Overall, the all black interior, the leatherite seats, the sunroof, the little useful touches like sunglass holder, and sensibly placed storage places, the hard but well-finished plastic and three power outlets for charging one’s digital devices—all this make N6 a practical and enthusiastic little ‘hot-hatch’ for a family car. It also came with decent set of wheels clad with a nice and grippy wide tyres, so overall the package was good, albeit a bit expensive for a hatchback.

Driving

One of my favourite cars—one that I had sold just a few months before N6—was a Ford Fiesta 1.6 Sports. Anyone familiar with that hot sedan knows what that ‘Poor man’s BMW’ really stood for and how it is a tall order of any car to attempt to rival it. It was in the Fiesta 1.6S that I had previously done most of my hill journeys and I was hoping that N6 with all its marketing claims would come close to its benchmark. To tell the truth, the N6 surpassed some of the characteristics of 1.6S but true, its engine lacks the low-end torque and sheer pulling power that was so amazing in the former. Astonishingly, the N6 electric steering rivels the superb hydraulic unit of the 1.6S in almost every practical way.

Let’s talk about the engine and its driving characteristics together with the clutchless iMT. The low-end grunt of the three-pot unit is not very inspiring and the throaty exhaust note feels more pretentious if you are driving in a sedate mode. But, the power kicks-in just beyond 1800 rpm and between 2000-2800 it really pulls off, dropping off again gradually beyond that range. True to a Hyundai character, the machine seems ultra refined and smooth to the extent of being feather light and free-rolling. This makes the gradual shifts in the engine power output quite noticeable. The gears are nice and totchy and the iMT also operates in a rather protective way, so if you shift fast and give sudden power inputs with the accelerator, the clutch seems to take its own sweet time in engaging. This tends to make you feel unnerved, especially if you are used to the performance of DSGs on European cars or if you have recently been playing with the 1.6S mated to a manual gear box. So, in this respect the iMT needs getting used to. On the other hand, the extremely stable posture of the car, good noise isolation and excellent suspension setup makes the car seem slower and thus more under control than it actually is on the road—it is rather a bit frustrating as it seems that everyone else is driving too slowly and one is always left feeling as stuck in slow moving traffic. The car simply yarns for open roads. Over the months I have learnt to educate myself and drive more sedately and less intensely thus achieving the same spirited performance that I used to get from my other performance cars. In this sense the N6 is a more relaxing, enjoyable automobile and driving it needs some education to truly utilize and appreciate its potential.

On flat highway stretches it swiftly touches the usual 80-100kmph mark as a matter of routine and the overdrive 6th gear helps cruise smoothly at such speeds with confidence. I can easily cover my usual 300km highway drive without fuss, fatigue or drama, and this is in itself a remarkable feat. Even when I drive rather sedately, the time taken is usually less than expected and I remain stress-free and feel well protected. The only issue is the occasional speed-bump that mostly requires slower than normal navigation lest the hard suspension gives you a ‘wake-up’ jerk—as it so often happens on our over-designed toll-gates that usually welcome us with giant breakers ahead of them. On the hills, though, the engine must be kept in high revvs to extract the necessary power from the turbo and thus maintain the requisite grunt. Since I grew up on torquey Diesels like the 2.5 litre naturally aspirated engine on the Qualis of the first Toyota lot, my expectation for low-end performance is always a bit extreme, especially on the hills. But reminding oneself that no petrol can ever match that kind of torque, makes this car seem adequately respectful. Driven correctly, the N6 is rather sprinty on the twisty ascents and easily leaves every other automobile huffing and puffing far behind. Use the gears wisely and one simply becomes a mountain goat!

The mileage is a matter that has been most surprising. Within city, where I am not too fast but not too slow either, the car returns a regular 16-18kmpl. On straight highways the output touches even around 20kmpl if I do not push it beyond 100kmph. I never drive beyond 110kmph for extended lengths of time so I have never explored the return in excessively high speeds. But the 20kmpl I mention is almost always with a fully laden car, i.e., with four hefty adults and a boot full of heavy luggage (we are not light travellers). The interesting fact is that the driving performance is barely hampered even when car is laden this way. Downhill performance is notably improved due to obvious reasons and its even and contolled braking characteristics. I am usually always one of the fastest climber uphill and similarly the most controlled and sprinty descender downhill.

In all of my previous cars the 7-8 hour 360 km one way journey has always made me feel slightly tired at the end. I can recall feeling somewhat dizzy at the end of almost every drive prior to the N6. With the N6, though, despite my 53 years of flesh and bones, I feel fresh and energetic even after a long 6-8 hour non-stop journey. There were times when I could drive all the way and then straight hop into my work chair to attend a long distance call or finish some critical work. I think this sums up the essence of what this car really is. It is a perfectly composed and well-sorted family hatchback with an almost perfect blend of performance, composure and refinement.

Drawbacks

Nothing in life is perfect. So, even this decent hatchback has its limitations. To me personally the one limitation is the lack of knowing one’s bearing, owing to the excessively sloping front hood. You see, I grew up on ambassadors, Qualis’s, Mahindras etc. To be able to see the extremities while driving is like a habitual necessity for me now. On the N6 one simply does not see the far end up front and one must always apply abstract judgement of where one is positioned. This is counter intuitive for a person like me who spent most of his driving life judging things on physical, visible evidence. The same is true while reversing and to be dependent on a rear camera rather than an airy, clear rear view is still something I have not really gotten used to. Apart from this basically altered design characteristic, which might be alright for one growing up in this new virtual environment—for they can still acclimatize themselves to such dynamics—there is no real practical flaw in this otherwise well designed piece of machine.

Maintenance

I chose a metallic grey colour, partly because I really like the car in this Ash-hue where the sharp cuts of the body line are most lucid, and mainly because this piece was readily available to take at the time without waiting. I have owned mostly light or fawn coloured cars previously and found that the dark shade is particularly hard to keep clean, especially when one is finicky and over-zealous about cleanliness. I always found the cleaner’s job wanting and have now resorted to a proper wash every once a while with a polishing routine every few months. The paint job, being no rival to the mighty German or the Japanese machines, is still very decent and better than the Marutis. Keeping it shiny and tidy is a chore.

In practical sense, the car has so far had only one minor problem: a warning light came on due to faulty temperature sensor reading in the first few months itself. This was corrected by a reset using an OBD tool at the service station—the process took only a few minutes. In my recent trip from the hills both the front TPS sensors on the wheels started indicating low pressure, despite the pressure being within the correct range). As expected, the warning disappeared after two days by itself and has not come back. Perhaps it was the excessive pressure variations on the front wheel while negotiating steep descents on the hills that triggered this warning. The car’s performance, otherwise, has been flawless and consistent through the almost 9000 km that I have driven it in all kinds of conditions that range from freezing sub-zero Himalayan altitudes to the summer high heat of New Delhi.

Conclusion

Overall the N6 is a fine daily commuter and a seems so far to be an extremely reliable and dependable transport, albeit at a slightly high cost than average. But considering the fun and premium feel such as its plush and well finished steering wheel, you end up enjoying it every time you sit in it. So far I have had a lot of fun with it and I intend to note the progress of the ownership though this thread. I will greatly appreciate if fellow Team-BHPeans add their bits and experiences to fill the gaps and add colour to it. Thank you all for reading and participating in this.

I got the max extended warranty of 3+4, for additional peace of mind. I own the i20 N Line N8 DCT.
I asked at my dealership and the max warranty is 5 years; the 7 year thing is for the regular i20. How did you get this 7-year warranty?

I got it during the first service from the dealership.

Greetings, fellow members and readers! This is my very first post on Tbhp post membership approval and over a decade of silent readership. Apologies in advance if thereís errors in my ownership thread.

A brief roundup of my automotive history -

I have always been a big automotive enthusiast since as far as I can remember, be it my childhood days while being schooled in the gulf spotting Landcruisers and Camaros or the first Maruti800 bought in the family. These days my daily travel totals upto about 75-100kms of happy highway miles mixed with some sore traffic jams in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

My first truly personal car a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander, bought pre-owned under the assumption it was a well kept car, turned out to be a borderline salvaged repaired car. Managed to run that for around 2 years from 2016 to 2018 going through multiples engine and suspension issues with random hose leaks and break every other day. It was further made worse by a non existent dealer or OEM service/spare network. Truly loved the car, still miss it everyday. Would've found a way to keep it if Mitsubishi was still around.

Hyundai i20 N Line Review-out.jpeg

Forward to 2018, the constant thought of being stranded by the roadside in my lemon car got the better of me, finally we decided to scrap the outlander and get something a little more sensible 10 lakhs OTR. Without much confusion, the swift, baleno and i20 elite were tested with the swift making the cut due to shortest waiting and offers at the time. A cherry red Swift zxi+ was brought home in August 2018 as the silver outlander said it's last goodbye.

Hyundai i20 N Line Review-670fcbb69bf749e9b776bafc908cc136.jpeg

While it did feel a bit unnatural to go from a SUV to a city hatch, the grunt from the beautiful petrol engine and the lightweight car itself made it feel like a gokart on steroids, add to it the slick manual gearbox which was much much better than the rubbery CVT I was accustomed to on the outlander.

Before I knew it, my aspirations changed from owning a rugged SUV to finding and shortlisting future hot hatches. The swift kept me absolutely satisfied for about 105,000kms of city use until 2023 post which the maintenance cost increased significantly to which the Maruti service representatives simply said - ' Sir it's a Maruti, one lakh kilometers is enough, aur kya expect karoge' which led me to scouting for potential replacements.

The criteria's to be met -

1. Must be fun to drive as a city car. ie- >100bhp.
2. Preferred hatch, sedan acceptable.
3. Automatic preferred, not mandatory.
4. Must have better build and paint quality relative to Maruti.
5. OTR price around 15 lakhs, <15lakhs preferred.

The replacements considered -

1. Venue Nline.
2. i20 Nline.
3. Slavia/Virtus 1.0.
4. Honda City CVT

The venue felt like a cramped up i20 on stilts, the VW twins felt like a compromise on german build quality was genuinely expecting better from the cabin, the honda city still felt like a car from 2020 with that creamy engine but dated interiors. By the process of elimination and test drives, the i20 Nline N8 DCT was finalized.

Since we had also bought an elite i20 petrol from the dealership in 2021, Hyundai was a trusted brand in the family and there were no second thoughts about reliability or build quality. A test drive was taken, a rather long one, the car left me thoroughly impressed and token was paid the same day with delivery promised in 2-3 days of Polar white or Starry night color, given that banking work was taken care of.

Come 22nd March 2023, the car was delivered in under a week as promised, with some delay due to holidays. A shining polar white i20 Nline DCT came home.

The likes -
1. The engine gearbox combo. Just perfect for city and nearby runs.
2. The OG steering wheel from the i20N sold overseas. Beautiful!
3. The interiors are sorted, modern yet well put together.

The dislikes -
1. The tyres. Not enough grip + lots of road noise.
2. The headlights, not strong enough for highway runs.
3. The fuel efficiency, if driven enthusiastically it drops all the way down to 7-7.5kmpl!! I used to get 14kmpl from my little Maruti go-kart. Quite shocking.

First thing I did was to get the car ceramic coated to try and preserve the factory sheen of the paint. Got it done at a studio for 18k for 5 years package with annual touchups, 9H was the brand I believe. Here's the result -

Hyundai i20 N Line Review-n-line-top.jpeg

Hyundai i20 N Line Review-n-line-back.jpeg


As fate would have it, I had a little mishap in the first week of ownership just day after ceramic coating was done when on a rural motorway, a family of pigs decided to stop mid road and turn back to make a run, resulting on a hit and a broken bumper with fender. This would leave the car in the workshop for the next 12 days due to lack of parts plus holidays for the financial year end.

Hyundai i20 N Line Review-acc.jpeg

Fast forward the next 10 days, marks a month of ownership of my beautiful white steed, with no major complaints as a customer. Have completed just over 1700 kms in around 20 days with an average of 10.5kmpl feather footed driving so far, hoping to do thousands more with a smile plastered in my face. Will do my best to keep the thread updated timely!

Hereís the short term pros and cons in a nutshell so far -

Pros -

1) The suspension is sorted, just the right amount of stiffness to avoid swaying as well as handling rough patches.
2) The raspy exhaust note, while being barely audible inside, is rather exciting on the outside. Good job insulating the interiors I guess!
3) The speaker setup is good for an audiophile as OEM, just wish it had more tuning options provided. The bass is good, the lows often end up muddled.
4) The car stays planted on the highway, the cruise control is rather good too. Generally it should be cancelled once you apply brakes, but in this case, it will re accelerate once you take your foot off the brake and come to the set level again rather convenient.

Cons -

1) The alloys arenít aesthetically as pleasing as they should be on a pseudo hot hatch. Will change soon.
2) A real lack of tuning options, no tune available for gearbox, a generic remap available for the 1.0 tgdi engine globally that takes it to 128-130bhp. Not sure how the gearbox will react to it.
3) The iffy reliability of DCT gearboxes in India historically, have bought the extra warranty from Hyundai. Hopefully in case it does happen, they will handle things better than VW.
4) Wish it had illuminated driver side door switches and all one touch power up down windows. Little things go a long way!

Please forgive me for any errors on the thread, this is my first attempt at an ownership review, hoping to pen down many more as the years pass.

Excellent review, fuel consumption will improve after 5000 km. Off the topic, what is the watch you're wearing in the last picture ?
